Program 3: Muhammad and His Heirs CD   MP3

     Muslims believe in the same God as Jews and Christians. But they do not believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God, rather that he was a great Prophet. For Muslims, the last in the line of Prophets that begins with Adam and Abraham, was MUHAMMAD AL-AMIN - "the Faithful One" whom Muslims usually refer to simply as Muhammad, adding in Arabic the words "May the peace and blessings of God be upon him".

     For Muslims Muhammad is not divine. But it was to him that God chose to deliver the final revelation of His message, through the Archangel Gabriel.

     This message was received by Muhammad, who is thought, by the way, to have been illiterate, and was later written down and collected by his first Companions into the QUR'AN or "The Recitation".

     In non-Muslim culture we know little or nothing of the life and character of Muhammad - the last of God's Prophets. How did the Muslims decide to continue their community after his death in the year 632?
